I am writing a novel, the world I am creating has ~3 (spoiler) sapient species derivated from modified humans. They are:
- Warriors, I don't have a name yet
Have a unique metabolism and regenerative capabilities providing then a "Hercules" body, their strength and endurance are top of the top relative to their size of course. Their diet was unique in a way, giving their bones and muscles substances that in larges quantities were capable of killing humans.
Berserker or Hybrid of the Tank/Damage classes in RPGs.
- Hunters, same with the name
Have a unique nervous system and muscles providing then with faster reflexes, respectively an agile body. Their brain was also capable of changing the intensity of their senses, giving them another way to experience the world.
Chinese martial arts or Hybrid of the Ranger/Agile type fighter classes in RPGs.
- Assassins, same with the name
Their entire body is unique because they are capable of harvest and storage the chemical compounds of a percentage of their food, utilizing them to create a variety of drugs/chemical substances, giving them a versatility that the others don't have.
My most favorite is the witchers of the books or game franchise, but with small differences.
If you think my question may be too broad think that all the sapients are of the same height, we will reduce their capabilities to the bare minimum so think that their specialties are only slightly stronger than what humans can do. No firearms.
My problem is about the fights between them, in the real world we are not the strongest or the fastest animal but if there was another sapient that was faster but weaker or stronger but slower, could their weakness maintain the status quo between us?
I don't know if I am making myself clear, what I am talking about is we have 3 "parties" each with their strong and weak side, how could one strong side of one of them not destroy the others or if the weakness of one of them is worse than of the others?
